Recently I've been using Animoto to make videos. I've also used SCREENR to make tutorials on how to use Animoto. Here are some videos and tutorials that I've made... I think this has a lot of potential for supporting teaching/learning in k-12 (and university) classrooms!
Glogster.com is a big hit at our school. Students have completed projects on everything from animals to math concepts, to holidays around the world. We use EDU Glogster, which can be set up for students without email addresses. Students create an interactive web page that includes text, graphics, animation, photos, and video. They can record their voices or video right into the program to create a soundbyte for the page. We use it 1st-5th Grade!
Wow! What fun!
Very user friendly!!
Thanks for sharing Animoto. I'm eager to see what students make of it...
Awesome job! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing! I was just having a discussion with my research team this evening about the use of technology in science and mathematics. Students (e.g., preservice/practicing teachers) in our online course have been struggling to make connections to their content areas. We were talking about how we need more examples that are specific to science education, math education, etc. In addition, there is a huge need for more examples that cover high school level.
I shared some cool presentations I created using Animoto with the administration at my school. The curriculum committee is looking at new ways to integrate technology. I just put together a presentation at the request of one of the members.
The PowerPoint is a quick Animoto "How To" guide which includes NJ CCC Standards and reasons why we should integrate technology. I'm also attaching the Animoto MP4s. I put them in the "Documents" section of this group.
I really like Animoto! I'm also familiar with Glogster, but haven't really used it. I do want to try it out and might use it with some of my students this semester.
I forgot to mention that Animoto has a special version for educators. Teachers can get the free upgrade if they use it with their students.
